We loved our stay in this apartment. It was spacious, very cared for and well equipped. Merche lives below and was so kind and helpful and we managed to communicate sufficiently with our minimal Spanish. We are a family of 2 adults and two teenagers (17 and 14) and had plenty of space. The area was fantastic for us – the shared pool with its views was so refreshing after a hot day. It was an easy drive to Biescas (10 mins) for a wide range of restaurants and activities (e.g. Biescas Adventura - GoApe type forest climbing / zip wire adventure, good English spoken). Masses of other activities are available e.g. white water rafting, canyoning. Sallent de Gallego (25 mins drive from Casa Merche) was a brilliant base in the mountains. Fantastic walks of all types and abilities in the heart of the Pyrenees – from 2 hours to 6, with stunning waterfalls and breathtaking scenery. We’d also recommend the canoeing on the lake between Sallent and Lanuza.
We combined this week long stay with 4 nights in Barcelona (where we flew in and out from) – we hired a car from Barcelona and the drive to Sorripas was easy – 3.5 to 4 hours and mostly very quiet roads.
We would definitely recommend – the area was very Spanish with very few tourists from other countries. Despite this, several - if not all - people in tourist offices, event receptions and restaurants spoke good English and we managed to get by very well with our limited Spanish.
